I have just discovered a great gift for new dads. The Daddy Diaper Changing Toolbox! It's from America, but they do free shipping to the UK. The inventors, Valrico residents Chris Hatzfield and Julie Etzkom, came up with the idea at their third baby shower, where Chris noticed that all the focus was on showering the new mum with gifts. What about Dad?
I agree, and with baby showers taking off in the UK, it's a great idea to shower both new mum and dad in helpful gifts in preparation for their new arrival.
The kit includes; among other things, a mask ("toxic fume filter"), goggles, a poop poncho, tongs, ear/nose plugs, pacifier (dummy, or "scream plug"), baby wipes, diaper, bio hazard bag and rubber gloves, among other things. Check out the link above for full details.
I have to say though..... nose plugs? Are we saying that dad's are really that wimpy!?
